Leaders We Deserve is changing its role

August 5, 2022

After fifteen years and over a million contacts (‘hits’) Leaders We Deserve remains an important way for me to share my ideas about leadership and creativity. Increasingly I have seen the benefits of rousing myself from my blogging slumbers to ask the painful question whether it needs some kind of updating.

WordPress has changed. That’s for sure, and I am currently learning how to drive the new supercharged model, demonstrating all the signs of a driver who should still be displaying L-plates

Pause, to see if I remember how to produce the moves leading into a side-road where I parked my pictures.

My new driving certificate


I reverse out of the lay-by into the main text highway with little unintended consequences. I Concentrate on the road ahead. Where am I going? Is this a test-drive with no other purpose of learning about the controls?

No, I was telling you about how Leaders We Deserve now has company among my various modes of travel along the electronic highways and byways.

For example, there is the recently born infant Everyday Creativity, with its weekly newsletter you are already receiving as followers of LWD.

Then there is the new (to me) podcast TudoRama, a must-listen for the rapidly growing audience (current word) whose members listen to the messages, heirs to receivers of radio broadcasts.

As an interim measure you should be receiving the newsletter regularly as a follower of LWD.

Longer term the various vehicles will rumble into action, with posts on creative leadership still to be found through the efforts of this old warhorse Leaders We Deserve, and posts on Everyday Creativity as the infant learns to walk before it can run.

As for TudoRama, who knows? Except I am sure it will build up a network interacting with its poddlers, long after prescriptive text insists I change what I’ve written to toddlers.

Leaders We Deserve has been inactive for several months. The story will be told on my podcast site TudoRama, hosted by Buzzsprout.


‘Hello, My name’s Tudor Rickards. welcome to TudoRama, my podcast about creativity in sport, politics, the arts and everyday life’.

I’ve spent a great deal of my time coming up with new ideas, and learning how they come about. 

In this first podcast I show how I made the leap recently from writing books to creating my first audio broadcast. In some ways it’s been like going back to school, or learning to write again, something I had to do once, while recovering from a serious illness. Or maybe it’s like learning to play tennis with your other hand. I already had plenty of experience, but a lot to learn modifying it for a new medium.

Leaders We Deserve will be used to introduce the new materials being generated through Tudorama.
